TURCK announces the release of its new powerfast disconnect switch which is fully compatible with the powerfast line of TURCK connectivity products. Featuring a rotary disconnect switch, this product offers a means to disconnect power, lock out and tag out a motor for maintenance or replacement, and eliminates the need to hardwire the system, simplifying the process.
The powerfast disconnect switch compliments TURCK’s line of powerfast products which provide users with quick disconnect power distribution solutions. This product allows the customer to easily fit a disconnect switch into their power circuits that include motors or other devices which require a means of disconnect for repair or replacement. The disconnect switch also eliminates the need for hardwiring removing the need for manual labor allowing it to be a more cost effective solution saving time and money.
Jay Bartsias, Product Manager for TURCK explains, “The powerfast rotary disconnect switch provides a plug and play solution that enables users to simply add the disconnect switch into their application rather than having to hardwire everything together.”
Ratings for the disconnect switch match the requirements for A-Size Power allowing it to be a perfect fit for small motor applications.
